SHOTS FIRED IN COMMUNITY OF GLASGOW PINES

(Newark, De 19702) Yesterday morning (Sept 19), patrol officers from the New Castle County Division of Police were dispatched to the area of North Thistle Way, in the community of Glasgow Pines for a report of gunshots being heard in the area.

When the units arrived, they conducted a property check of the area without any results.  Later, yesterday afternoon, officers were dispatched back to the area to recover and document evidence that was located by a homeowner.

When the officers arrived, they attempted to contact a male subject identified as a potential suspect.  When the officers approached him a foot pursuit ensued.  As they chased the subject, the subject turned and fired a handgun at the officers.  The officers subsequently lost sight of the subject. 

Detectives from the New Castle County Division of Police Criminal Investigations Unit arrived at the scene and assumed the investigation.   They have since been able to identify the suspect as 22-year-old, Khairon William Edwards.   During the overnight hours, arrest warrants were signed including the charges of: one count felony Attempted Murder 1st degree, one count of felony Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and one count of felony Reckless Endangering 1st degree.

This morning (Sept 20) members of the New Castle County Division of Police SWAT team attempted to locate Edwards at his residence but were unsuccessful.   

“Today the members of the New Castle County Division of Police are blessed that we are not planning the funerals for two officers that were shot at last night while providing police services in Glasgow Pines.”, stated Colonel Vaughn M. Bond, Jr. “The apprehension of this dangerous suspect is the number one priority for our agency, and we will aggressively pursue every lead until he is in custody.  To the suspect I strongly encourage you to immediately turn yourself in. If any of our community members have information on the suspect’s whereabouts, we ask that you notify the New Castle County Police.

Hours prior to the attempted murder of our officers, members from our department spent several hours in the community of Edgemoor Gardens assisting with their annual Cleanup Day.  Later in the afternoon, we spent several hours in the community of Sparrow Run providing book bags and lunches to over 200 children from the community. I can assure you that the cowardly acts of this suspect will not distract us from initiating or participating in events such as these to better the communities we serve.”  

Khairon Edwards is a black male, 5’06, and approximately 145 lbs.  He is considered to be armed and dangerous.  If located, members of the community are advised to avoid contact with him and call 911.
